How can we improve Pocket Informant 5 for iOS?

Triggers

Please add the following capabilities to Triggers

Ability to create and save checklist in the trigger screen like in the old PI template.

Ability to create a trigger from an existing item--Done in 5.2

Ability for Triggers to support the same fields as the templates

You can now set the "All Day" flag in Event Triggers (it's the first option in the Hour field) Done in 5.2

Please add an option to "Triggers" where I can filter the trigger lists.

The idea is, if you have a large number of Triggers, it will reduce the number of displayed Triggers.

2nd Option

I went to edit a trigger that came from an old template. It wasn't immediately obvious how to change the start and duration of event. Please make that clearer

Allow user to save/link a contact to that template similar to prior version templates.

Please consider adding the ability to set a Parent Task from a Trigger. I used to be able to do it using Templates and used the feature quite often. It would be a great help. Thanks

Please add the ability when making triggers to pop up your existing tag fields not a blank field and then change it later to an existing tag field.

        A minor improvement is needed in Triggers. The event specific section where you define the start and duration of the event needs labels for the contents that don't disappear. I went to edit a trigger that came from an old template. It wasn't immediately obvious how to change the start and duration of event.

        Please add same fields as Templates had. Especially need the fields "Project/Sync account", and "Tags"

        I really cannot understand why trigger removed fields from templates already supported ! What's the reason of doing that?

        A trigger that would create a project already populated with tasks would be great for repetitive operations

        Add Switch to select 'Whole -Day-event' in the trigger menu. I used templates for simple events that didn't nedfto be Edited.
        Just pick the Trigger and confirm...

        Possibility to select a bookmarked location for triggers (this was possible with Templates in version 4)

      • FabioFabio commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Absolutely. One of the main advantages of triggers (ex-templates) is the possibility to select different alarms for different events. Having only one standard setting is definitely a step backwards from the previous version.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It would be helpful to save Triggers WITH Alarms and to create it from a date in the calender (with Templates it was possible).

        When we add tags to triggers we should have them auto filter. Right now I have to remember the tags. With over 30 it makes creating triggers tedious.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        You already have Triggers, for new tasks or events. Any thoughts about adding Rules (for lack of a better name) to perform actions--for example to star tasks that meet certain criteria (overdue?) or to change the date of a task that meets certain conditions?
        Thanks!

        I agree with comment below that we should have back the ability to create a trigger from an existing event or task.

        I believe this is a feature that Informant programmers should take a real look at. A feature similar to what Rodolphe mentions is already being employed by the Week Cal app. I set up templates so that if my event contains the work "Joe" the event color will always be red (or whatever color I choose). If the event contains "school" then the event color will always be yellow, and so on. There is no need to manually select a "trigger" when adding an event or manually changing in in the event information. This is a huge feature for me, and it sounds like others as well.

        I'd like to set All Day duration in triggers for my Off and Vacation days like I did in templates in previous versions.
